Now that we’ve had a few days to examine the dress, the flowers, the fascinators, etc. of the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, let’s take a listen to their exit out of St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.
I hear the guard announcing the couple, people cheering, a woman(?) screaming (really not sure if that’s a person or some kind of noise maker), a choir singing…and…wait…there’s NO BELLS. Yes, that’s right. NO BELLS. What are a beautiful ring of bells for if not to ring for a royal wedding? The bells of St. George’s Chapel rang for the recent birth of Prince Louis Arthur Charles, so…why exactly were they not rung for this occasion? Hmm. Somebody doesn’t like bells. Not a friend of mine.
I’m huffy right now, but I’ll get over it. Here’s a link to hear what the bells could have sounded like for our gleaming married couple.
Update: there were bells! They rang during the carriage procession, and you can hear them faintly in the video below. Whew! Thanks, Matthew Higby, for correcting me.
